Braveheart (syn. Gordon's College)
A floriblunda rose with attractively formed Hybrid Tea shaped flowers. They are of a beautiful coral salmon colour and have a good fragrance. In the young stage the foliage is purplish turning to deep green and very glossy. The plant is upright and bushy also disease resistant. The very quick repeat flowering of this rose is an added bonus. It gained an award from the Royal National Rose Society Trails in 1989. This rose was originally named after ROBERT GORDON (1668-1731), an Aberdeen Merchant who founded a school bearing his name, ROBERT GORDON'S COLLEGE, now one of Scotland's leading independent schools.

Awards: Winner of the best Floribunda Award at the British Rose Awards Rose Day at St. Albans 1998; Fragrance Award at The Hague International Rose Trails 2003.

Parentage: Abbeyfield Rose x Roddy Mc Millan
